Cannon Beach has to be one of Oregon’s most famous and iconic beaches, made so by Haystack Rock which you might have seen featured prominently in several hundreds of photographs. We’d been before but we didn’t recall having children with us at the time, so we made it a point to stop and see the […]

Orwell Corner Historical Village, Prince Edward Island


Are you visiting Prince Edward Island? Put this place on your list, if you haven’t done so already.

A quick internet search […]

Covered Bridge Tour, Scio, Oregon


A friend of ours was telling us about a Covered Bridge driving tour which their family had done a few months back. Curious, we asked her where it was located and she passed along this tour information. We hopped in the car, off on a date night adventure, armed with cameras and plenty of time […]

Exploring Charlottetown, PEI


One of our days on Prince Edward Island was spent exploring Charlottetown. This was the only day of our visit that the weather was kinda iffy. There was a light drizzle for a bit in the afternoon but the rest of the day remained clear and we enjoyed our time there. When we are exploring […]
